I recently had the opportunity to visit the new Rock Island Lake Club in Sparta NJ.  Michelle and Perry Bonadies (formely of The Lake Valhalla Club) recently purchased this facility and it is soon to be one of New Jersey’s premier banquet facilities.  Here are a few images taken during the construction phase.  Stay tuned for more photos in the next few weeks when it nears completion.
